Summer Days!

Oh how I love Summer Days! And our very own Paulabella has captured them so wonderfully in her set of 2x2 stamps...aptly titled "Summer Days"! Can you feel the soft breeze sweeping off the lake onto the porch with this swing? I'll bet this image ellicits some sort of memory from days gone by...I know it does for me.

Short and sweet - I stamped the image onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento tuxedo black ink. I then colored with copics and added depth shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. The image panel and main card were cut using Nestie dies. I then added machine stitching and dp. I think this is from Memory Box but it came from a Paula care package eons ago.

A soft colored seam binding bow topped with my ever favorite button and twine and simple sentiment finish this off.

There's still time for you to participate in this week's sketch challenge check it out.

Enjoy your lazy summertime day!
